Technical Note: Canon EFS 10-22 fitted on Canon 400D fitted on a cheap tripod. It’s very hard to get the horizon level right as I tilted the camera gear to capture in portrait mode. In trying to remove human traffic as much as possible from the shots, here we are.
My Canon 400D tend to go underexpose nowadays and struggle in low light. Taking shots at ISO 800 means stepping into noisy grainy territory. I had to bump up 2/3 steps in exposure bias in processing the shots.
They are then stitched with PTGui and converted to flash format using Pano2VR player.
To know more about Venetian hotel, please practice your google-ing skill. I’m not good with words and they are certainly would not be appealing if I were to write. Let the picture speak.
Tada~ Here’s a 360 degrees view panorama created from the end of the Langkawi Panorama Bridge (sky bridge). It’s taken using my faithful Canon 400D. I was using Sigma 18-200 with polarizer filter on in the hope of getting more details on the sky over the bright day.
Technically, it’s quite straightforward in composing this panorama. Basically I’ll just overlap my snapshot 50% or more to the previous photo taken and repeat the cycle twice/thrice just to be safe from human movement/ blurring/ exposure problem/ any other potential problem. Of course, I mounted my camera on a tripod.
What do I use to produce the panorama? I bet you are excited to know! The panorama above is created using Pano2VR, PTGui and Adobe Photoshop. These combo work just like wonder. PTGui is one of the best stitching program I ever found. :)
Here’s one of the two panorama I attempted to take in New World Park last week when I went there for lunch. This piece of panorama is taken hand-held without tripod. I just need to to try to maintain the horizontal balance and staying where I was standing while turning my body around composing the shots. Long to go before I can master panoramic skill, there’s just so much to learn. It’s exciting! I hope you enjoy my shot here.
